[O/T] Technical Fail As Usual

Okay, this is a really stupid question, but I'll throw it out there anyway: Would anyone have a recommendation for a feed aggregator (a la Bloglines or Google Reader) that works with Twitter feeds? I'm looking for the laziest solution possible, basically.

Nothing happening around here. No poker. I did take a survey sent to me by Full Tilt - I kind of suspect I wasn't really the target audience. None of the things they were asking about are likely to motivate me to up the volume - basically I stick to occasional dabbling in play chips because of the UIGEA and a flaky internet connection.

And also because I suck at poker, but let's keep that our little secret, okay?

From a forum:
Natural selection will eventually get you. You can't beat it over the long run.

You have to hand it to the major sites - they are always doing something to try and keep things fresh. Whether it's double or nothing sit n goes, antes, badugi, you name it, there is always something different to try.

I couldn't get motivated to do much of anything last night so I decided to check out the new cashout tournament format from Full Tilt. The basic concept is that half your buyin goes into a cashout pool and you can cash out (sell) some or all of your chips at any time*.

Fascinating concept and I'd be interested to see how hard it would be to amass a stack, lock in a return of your entry and then try and freeroll your way to a cash. I wouldn't know because I'm very rusty and got lots of **** cards.

Will play again.

I also noted that the ante option has made its way down to some of the nanostakes tables. Deep stacked 6 max PLO with antes sounds like fun.

Thank you FTP for keepin' it fresh.

* any time being from the end of the late registration period until the final table. The final table gets the balance of the cashout pool based on chip counts.

[WAY O/T] Say What?

A bank issued credit card with a 79.9% interest rate?

Holy **** and here I thought 20% was out of line.

Bring back usury laws.

On Plan, Sadly

Still on board with the 'play poker at least every couple weeks' plan.

Played one table of PLO for a half hour or so until my internet connection degraded. Wifi sucks.

I won a few imaginary dollars.

Then I finished my tax return and wrote a check for something like 1,600 times what I "won".

I is sad.

Wouldn't it be nice if the IRS took Sklansky bucks. Or FTP play chips.

I played a turbo sit-n-go the other night. It was probably the first SnG I've played in 6 months.

I paid almost zero attention as I was busy donating play chips on a PLO table at the same time.

By sheer lack of involvement I ended up 2nd, cashing after the shove monkeys picked themselves off one after another.

LOL poker.
